Admission Standards


General admission standards

• Age. Applicants for all general, technical, and vocational education programs, basic skills programs, and continuing education courses must be at least 18 years of age or be a high school graduate. However, a basic skills program applicant who is a minor between the ages of 16 and 18 years of age may be considered a student with special needs and may be admit­ted to an appropriate program of study in accordance with policy established by the State Board of Education. Students entering Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) must be at least 20 years of age.

• Education. An applicant’s general level of education should be sufficient to make possible reasonable progress in the program of study. Applicants for associate degree programs must be high school graduates or equivalent, as recognized by the state. The College will only recognize high school diplomas from regionally accredited schools or home schools registered with the state. Students not completing such a program must complete the GED or attain an Adult High School diploma through an accred­ited institution.
